“My” 2013 Year-End Awards

2013 – My last blog of the year.  It’s been an exciting time for me to create and write on my blog.   I was prepared to write some reflective about this year, but decided to have a little fun.  Here in the U.S., we have so many award shows:

The American Music Awards

The Essences Awards

The People Choice Awards

CCN Heroes Award

The Grammy Awards

The American Country Awards

The Billboard Awards

MTV Music Awards

The American Latin Music Awards

BET Awards

NAACP Awards

VH1 Awards

Kid’s Choice Awards

Golden Globe Awards

…and many others not mentioned.  So I decided to do “my” own awards of 2013.  You may or may not agree with my award recipients – that’s fine.  I have my own opinion and I approve this message!  Again, I’m having fun.
